Youngsters have always mocked their elders.

The latest such evidence: a social satire written by a nine-year-old in 1890.

Daisy Ashford, author of The Young Visiters, actually even published her novel once she grew up, so this isn’t a recent discovery by a literary scholar — just a discovery by a current book blogger.

You can read excerpts from The Young Visiters on Literary Hub or in full at Project Gutenberg.
